This spring will see Sheffield in a Tigers uniform, and he's glad to be back with GM Dombrowski and manager Leyland from his Marlin days. The player with a batting stance that is magically both jittery and ferocious presents a memoir as searching as it is revelatory. There is nothing routine here, from Sheffield's early game tutelage under Dan and Dwight Gooden, grandfather and uncle, to his understanding of fatherhood and selfhood and his candid descriptions of Barry Bonds, Joe Torre, and others. With Ritz (Divided Soul: The Life of Marvin Gaye), Sheffield has authored an authentic, spare, yet heartfelt work. For all general baseball collections.
